100 Cities - 100 Memorials

Memorial Inventory Project:  There is one other existing partial database to consult - The WWI Memorial Inventory Project [CLICK HERE]. It contains some memorials our map doesn't. The listings on this database are fair game for the Memorial Hunters Club. So if you want to search for treasure from your desk - find missing listings here and submit them. Remember though, you will need to come up with pictures and the history of the memorial. You might be able to hunt that down through www.Proquest.com and Google.

The West Virginia Veterans Memorial was designed by Charleston native P. Joseph Mullins, and built in stages from 1990-1999. The monument honors the over 10,000 West Virginian soldiers who lost their lives in the service of their nation. The memorial was originally funded by private donations and completed with the support of the state legislature. Though the memorial honors all West Virginian veterans, inscribed names are limited to four twentieth century conflicts for which data on West Virginian service exists: World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. The Veterans Memorial is a popular gathering place for events and ceremonies that involve veterans.

The Mojave Cross was erected in 1934 on Sunset Rock in the Mojave National preserve as a memory to those who were killed in action during World War I.

The memorial was closed in 2002 after court rulings declared it illegal because of separation of church and state constitutional concerns. On April 28, 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Salazar v. Buono in a 5–4 decision that sent the case back to a lower court. The high court ruled there was no violation of the separation of church and state when Congress transferred the land surrounding the cross to a veterans group. Writing for the majority, Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote, "The goal of avoiding governmental endorsement [of religion] does not require eradication of all religious symbols in the public realm". 

In April 2012, a land exchange to privatize the area -- transferring it to the Veterans of Foreign Wars -- was approved by the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. On November 11, 2012, the cross was rededicated by local citizen Henry Sandoz in a Veterans Day ceremony.

The Whitfield County World War I Memorial was dedicated on July 4, 1924, and relocated and rededicated on November 11, 2017.

The Memorial comprises a rectangular bronze plaque affixed to a rough-hewn granite slab with a polished front face. The plaque, which features the DAR symbol at top, lists in alphabetical order, without rank, the names of 19 men from the county who died in service. Sponsored by the Governor Milledge Chapter of the DAR, the memorial was dedicated on July 4, 1924, at the old post office on Hamilton Street in Dalton, Georgia. The American Legion spearheaded the 2017 campaign to relocate the memorial from the old post office to the grounds of the Whitfield County Courthouse, where other memorials are gathered. The memorial was rededicated at this new location on November 11, 2017.

The inscription on the plaque reads:
